1 Min Read

ATHENS, June 14 (Reuters) - Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras offered to hire a small number of workers to resume a public news broadcast, he said in a statement on Friday, in a concession to coalition partners angry over the shutdown of state broadcaster ERT.

He said a special liquidator appointed for ERT would set up a committee backed by all parties to hire workers so that the news broadcast could restart immediately.

He said he expected his coalition partners - who have demanded the immediate reopening of ERT - to have a "responsible" stance on the proposal.
